to write his own myth in washington, loyal republican and a very nice guy one on one. so i think people forgave a lot. but the one thing to remember and the one thing that anybody serious about our economy should not forgive is this: his proposed referrals, his most desired reforms, as regards social security, medicare and medicaid all default to taking money out of the federal treasury and moving it to speculators on wall street or to insurance companies via vouchers. so again and again and again, he is not for downsizing government government. he ises for using the government to collect money and then redistributing that money to the wall street speculators and the insurance companies that top the list of his campaign contributors. >> all right, john nichols, you finally, called out paul ryan and called him what he is, a corporatist who is not loyal to the principles he pretends to abide by. john nichols, washington correspondent for "the nation,"
